THE GUT-SKIN AXIS - HOW IMPORTANT ARE PROBIOTICS?
The so-called "gut-skin" axis describes that a healthy gut positively affects the human skin. Studies in recent years have directly linked an imbalanced gut microbiome to certain inflammatory skin conditions, and some probiotics have been shown to improve inflammatory skin conditions and reduce skin aging.
A healthy gut environment supports more balanced and healthier looking skin and a reduction in blemishes and pimples.
At the same time, the skin acts as an interface to the outside environment and as such is colonized by a diverse collection of microorganisms including bacteria, fungi and viruses. The milieu of this so-called "skin microbiome" is determined by endogenous factors of the skin as host and exogenous environmental factors. With its adaptive immune response, the skin itself ensures a balanced microbiome with defense mechanisms such as inflammation. However, inflammation can lead to breakouts, rashes and wrinkles.
In order to support the balance of the skin microbiome and thus healthy, radiant skin, prebiotics and probiotics play an essential role from the inside and outside.
SKIN MICROBIOME BALANCE FROM THE OUTSIDE
1. Selected prebiotics in the Prebiotic Purifying Serum support the development and function of positive bacterial cultures on your skin for a balanced skin microbiome.
Clarifying tea tree oil, zinc and flavonoids reduce breakouts and sebum production.
Active ingredients from aloe vera and tiger grass help to calm the skin and reduce redness.
2. Avoid hyper-disinfection and scrubbing on the skin. You're killing all the good bacteria that support your microbiome and damaging the skin barrier.
Gentle cleansing with the Green Coffee Enzyme Cleanser, which at the same time supports the skin's own regeneration is ideal.
GUT MICROBIOME FROM WITHIN
1. Biotic 20/5 Billion supports your critical intestinal functions and balances its ecosystem with 5 billion living microorganisms from 20 selected bacterial strains.
Daily intake of this 2-in-1 pre- and probiotic combination supports the building of a healthy gut environment, including a healthy immune response and barrier function. Find out more about the properties of the unique gut supplement.
2. Fermented vegetables can help to balance your intestines. Because:
- Food becomes easier to digest if it has the same environment as in the intestine
- Higher bioavailability
- Vitamins (C, B vitamins) are produced (very good for vegans)
- Has an anti-bacterial effect against bad bacteria
- Plant toxins are broken down
- High biodiversity in the gut due to fermentation
We show you here in the video how you can easily ferment vegetables at home.
